Resolution

The solution requires changes to registry keys on the machine where the problem occurs. A backup should be taken prior to proceeding.

  1. While logged in with an administrator, open the Windows Registry editor
  2. Open HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and search for the key {0002096B-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} 
  3. Open the TypeLib subfolder
  4. Take note of the version listed and copy the registry key (see img 01)

  6. Search for the key you copied in step 4. 
  7. Remove all folders which do not match the version from step 4. (see img 02)
